OpenSolaris 2009 Elections & Constitution


Just cast my ballot in this years OpenSolaris OGB Ballot, and voted yes for the new OpenSolaris constitution. I strongly believe that if your entitled to vote on something and didn't then you shouldn't be complaining about it later, so if you are a core contributor you should go vote now. Polls close at Mon Mar 23 23:59:59 2009 PDT.
